Understanding Diabetes and its Impact on Veins and Arteries
Diabetes is a disease that affects the body’s ability to properly distribute glucose from the food we eat to the cells in our body. This leads to persistently high glucose levels, which, over time, can cause severe health issues. One such complication is peripheral vascular disease, where high glucose damages the inner walls of arteries, leading to plaque buildup that obstructs blood flow to the lower extremities.
Individuals living with diabetes are at greater risk of developing peripheral artery disease (PAD) or blocked arteries, especially in the lower leg area between the knee and ankle. The reduced blood flow to the feet and toes, combined with skin changes and muscular alterations, increases the likelihood of foot or toe wounds, which are challenging to heal due to diabetes-related complications.
Effective Treatments for Artery Blockage and PAD
Managing diabetes alongside serious medical conditions like peripheral artery disease can be complex. However, with the support of a highly trained and experienced vascular surgeon like Dr. Diego Hernandez, patients have a chance to regain control of their vascular health.
